Then it was time to shop. We mainly shopped for ourselves, but we had to stop by Janie & Jacks really quick to look at their sale rack. Mom got some clothes for Ella and Hudson for Valentine's Day.
Our last stop was NY & Company- one of my favs. I got some fun new spring clothes. I was excited. Next year we need to change our order, Shopping, Eat, Massage. It is hard to shop for clothes after eating a big meal at the Cheesecake Factory.
Hudson topped off the evening. I was in Ella's room hanging up her clothes (trying to be a good housewife and mom) when Hudson came around the corner with water all down the front of this outfit. I walked into the kitchen and there was water all over the floor. Hudson had helped himself to the water from the fridge. I was shocked, but it was hysterical. I tired really hard not to laugh at him. He always keeps me on my toes.

Hudson is so precious and I am not just saying that because he is my son....well, maybe. He got some new pj's for Christmas that have a drop bottom on them. He is so cute running around in them. Hudson decided he wanted Dixie to sleep with him. So, we tucked in both of them in and cracked the door. Dixie made it about a minute before she jumped down and ran out. Hudson started crying. Dixie just isn't ready so sleep in there!!
We have birthday week at our house. It all started on Tuesday with a shopping trip with Trina- one of my co-workers and a wonderful friend who is my new personal shopper. We went to NY & Company....one of my favs. I was able to get a cute sweater and 2 new pairs of pants. So fun to shop!! Then on my actual birthday, my wonderful teammates ordered Jason's Deli and made birthday cake. My students at school my kids made me feel so special....constantly wishing me Happy Birthday or singing to me. They are such a sweet group of kids (for the most part).
That night we went to dinner at SaltGrass with my dad since my mom was out of town. Hudson was a little under the weather, the benefit of that was he went to sleep at 7 pm. Paul and I got to spend some time just hanging out and talking....hard to do with 2 small children.
Friday night, the Lasiters has us over for dinner. Marci is a really great cook. It is so fun to watch the boys play...we even put them in the bath together. Hudson did not like it, but JD loved it. We had a good time together.
Saturday night we did my birthday with my family. We got a babysitter so we could actually enjoy dinner and not entertain a 2 year old through dinner. We went shopping at Northpark and found tons of great deals. I love sales!! We ate dinner at Maggiano's....family style. It was a fun experience. The food was so amazing!! We had a great time with the fam. We ended the night back at our house with birthday cake and presents. Hudson and Ella were excited to see the family. We enjoyed our traditional red velvet cake from Red Oven, and cheesecake, chocolate cake, and tiramisu from Maggiano's. YUMMY, YUMMY!!! We had a great time and I have a wonderful birthday!! Thank you for everyone who made it so special!!
Happy last year in my 20's. Hudson & Ella hanging out!!

Just a quick Hudy story.
So yesterday, we put Hudson down for his nap in his room. He went unwillingly as usual, but was fine after a minute or two. Then Ella and I went to lay down in my room for a Sunday afternoon nap. After a few minutes passed, I heard Hudson in the living room. He had climbed out of his big boy bed, opened his door and decided he wasn't taking a nap. So, we got up and played about 30 more minutes and started nap time all over again. This time he was tired and stayed in bed.
Oh, but the story doesn't end there. About 2:00 in the morning, I heard a door open. I told Paul, "Hudson just opened his door." Paul met him at our door and Hudson just waved and said, "Hi, Dad!!" Paul had to put him back in bed and told him it wasn't time to get up just yet. Luckily, he went back to sleep.
Then at 6:30, we hear our door open and Hudson's little head popped out, he waved a little wave and said Hi!!! We just laughed because he is so precious. It really made my day!! I just kept remembering his little head peeking around the corner and his big smile...it makes my heart melt.
